Eagle-eyed LEGO.com visitors in Russia spotted an interesting graphic on the Russian-language LEGO website earlier today. The new masthead depicts clusters of minifigs from the three branches of the holy Trilogy - Prequel, Original and Sequel. The last character in the lineup is none other than Luke Skywalker in the tattered Jedi robes we can see him wearing on the cover of The Last Jedi issue of Vanity Fair. Could this be a teaser or just promotional gimmick set to whet our appetites?

It is a fact that Japanese toymakers Takara took it upon themselves to produce unique 3.75-inch action figures based on Darth Vader, See-Threepio (C-3PO), and Stormtrooper in their classic Kenner Star Wars line, but they also distributed common versions made in Hong Kong during their short run. Knowing that, there is no way we'd ever list a Takara figure based on these three characters without highly detailed images. Sadly, the seller that listed this auction didn't factor that in before listing. Follow this link to see if you can identify which version this is, then ask yourself; are these the only three Takara made their own versions of?
